How did we get here? 15 April 2002
By Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. I'm always amazed at the echoes that seem to run through the corridors of history. Christianity, in particular, seems prone to its member consistently re-hashing ancient heresies in new forms.
This book deals not with an overarching view of Christianity in general but the development of Evangelical thought in America in particular. Modern science and academia likes to delude itself into believing it has a fully objective method of viewing history and the development of America. This delusion is belied by their complete neglect of Evangelical thought and how it shaped the course of human affairs in this country.
Tracing the course of theological development in America from the Puritans to post-modern America, this collection of insightful essays provides the reader with not only where we've been but how we got where we are today.
Those interested in merely how Evangelical though affected or followed along philisophical thinking and affected history will find this compelling. Those who love theology of any persuasion will find this collection of essays fascinating as one sees how theology has progessed and/or degenerated over the centuries.
I highly recommend the book to any who have even the slighest interest in theology and history.
